On 29 April, the Brussels-based EU office of international NGO Transparency International launched the first-ever comprehensive integrity report on the European institutions.
Earlier this year, the Madrid-based transparency advocacy organisation Access Info Europe released a manual for those seeking access to European Union documents.
The Guide on Access EU Documents is particularly aimed at citizens and civil society, but also at academics and journalists. By explaining the administrative procedure underlying Regulation 1049/2001 (the EU’s law on access to documents) step by step, AIE seeks to “demystify” an opaque procedure which “remains underused by the population at large”.
Reporters evaluate regulations in 105 countries and EU.
On 21 March of this year, Access Info Europe, a Madrid-based advocacy organisation favouring greater access for citizen to government information, published a report on the state of play in the EU’s transparency policy.
